central France 300m/1000ft above sea level
Woke up this morning with slush on the ground outside and temp 1°C
Since then the temp has fallen, so has the snow. Now about 15cm/6inches deep. Not a lot by northern USA/Canadian standards, but we live in the bottom of a hollow, so every exit from home is uphill.
More later...

It is 4.8°C so for us it is cold.

Today in Sunny South Africa, Johannesburgs high is 29deg C. It feels a lot hotter than 29 right now but that is the official high. Time for a swim!

It seems that we have settled into winter this week. It's been below freezing every day with snow falling almost every say (but not in large quantities).

We're more back to normal readings (mid-50's F or 11-13°C).

Gorgeous here - partly sunny, temps around 3 - 5 C, and enough snow that it isn't really doing any melting. Just right.

Today is 35 deg C. It is so hot and this is the time of the year that the schools do athletics. So they have to run in this heat. We have very fair skin, especially my son and myself, that we have to use so much sunblock. My son has to play cricket this afternoon in this heat and I have to trust that he uses the sunblock. If he doesn't use it, he will blister. A mother's worries never end.

4.8°C in town which normally means it is a little cooler here as I am more exposed.

Today the high is 30 deg and predicting the same for the next 3 days. Wish we had some of your perfect snow agony!

My goodness, Sue, it is warmer here than where you are! We are up to 8 C today.
That is not entirely a good thing, it makes it very sloppy. I couldn't get my shopping cart across the parking lot to my car yesterday - it had been plowed well enough for below freezing weather, but that last inch or so of snow is just a mess once it warms up.

My husband has spent the last couple of days walking through the ditches, getting soaked, up to his *ahem* in sloppy snow. Someone in his company did not secure a little box of explosive devices, and it blew off the truck. So the whole workforce was out scouring the ditches looking for a white (it figures) box about the size of a paperback book. They can't just leave these things laying around the countryside - some kid could find it in the spring and blow his hand off. They had a 30 km stretch of road to cover and they did in fact find it.

I've just returned from a few days in north Wales, where amongst other things, I hiked up a mountain called Elidir Fawr in severe winter conditions. There are some good views of this mountain and surrounding area at http://stigvista.co.uk/pa/walks/wales/elidir/elidir.htm but on this occasion the snow had drifted up to waist deep in parts. That was OK, but the wind was the worst I've encountered in this area, and was frequently impossible to move against. the temperature on the upper slopes was about -5C, but with wind-chill considerably lower. I'd intended to move on over the ridge to Y Garn, but this could have been suicidal!
You had to be there really

I think I only read this weather thread in the hope that all this talk of snow will cool me down a bit. Today the temperature in Cape Town is 38 deg C. I don't think it has ever reached this high here. At least not in my life time.

2.4°C at the airport (just up the road from me) and 2.1°C in town - it makes a change for town to be colder than here.

Well, we have entered into a cold snap. It is -14 C out there and will drop to -17 tonight. It's nights like this that the city goes on the lookout for the homeless population.

Pretty much the same as Skunkee for me: -11°C (~ 10°F) outside right now --- our forecast high for today is -9°C (~ 14°F) --- tonight we're to drop to -19°C (~ -8°F), with windchill factored in it'll feel like -29°C (~ -28°F).

>>>> It is -14 C out there and will drop to -17 tonight.

I can't help but laugh when I see that sort of thing. It's just crazy!

Pretty warm here - for some reason the summer hasn't given us the extreme heat just yet and we're sitting around the mid 30'sC most days. We've got a big job coming up in two or three weeks so I expect it's then we'll see the big temps ... Murphy's law and all that.

(edit to add: this is what happens when you go out for the day and don't leave the breezeair on )

It's what I do!
A local (Welsh that is) farmer we spoke to, said last week's wind had been the strongest he'd ever experienced - and I guess he would know better than most.

Yesterday was a temperable day. It got to 58°F (14°C), and was a sunny day as well. Today should see us about the same, then cool for Saturday's high (44°F or 7°C). Even now, at 2:20am, it's 36°F (2°C), and a gentle breeze of about 5mph (4.3 knots).

It may be crazy, but it's reality here ---- we went down to -21°C last night (with windchill -29°C) --- it's currently -18°C (with windchill -26°C).

I'm not laughing Copago --- heading off to find another chunk of wood to put on the fire instead.
